Question:

124 Mr. R. Bruton asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will give details of the recruitment schedule for staff in Blanchardstown Institute of Technology, Dublin 15. [4711/99]

The arrangements for the recruitment of staff are a matter for the institute which I understand is at present in the process of filling senior management posts and recruiting support and administrative staff. My Department has to date sanctioned an initial allocation of 22 posts for the institute and further posts will be allocated in consultation with the institute so that it can appoint other necessary staff in the lead-in to the commencement of courses in September 1999
